comment How important are accents in written Spanish?
@SergioRomero: I don't understand then why you don't consider it's important to also write English properly in comments to this question. For instance, every properly written sentence in English must include a verb. Or maybe it's just a case that when asked some people feel writing properly is important, but in practice often write casually rather than properly.

comment How important are accents in written Spanish?
@CesarGon: Of course. Just like many people would consider the final sentences of your previous two comments wrong English grammar for starting with a conjunction or preposition and lacking a verb. But in reality we really write like that all the time and it doesn't seriously impede anybody's reading. And after all the OP wasn't asking about grammatical or orthographical correctness but "importance". And I think the answers here cover all the aspects of importance, which of course include but are not limited to correctness.

comment Gusto variant of the verb gustar
@MichaelWolf, these things are up to personal taste, convenience, context, and subjective standards. For instance some might feel your comment would be less sloppy if you had put the term of address within the sentence or followed it with a comma instead of capitalizing the second word of your sentence.

comment Is “versus” a Spanish word?
Actually it could be that Latin never used it the way English uses it. The Spanish words verso and versar evolved from the Latin word but never had a sense like verus does in English or Spanish. Makes me wonder how English got to use versus in a way that Latin did not...
